Red Pepper Dip (Pseudo-hummus)

I was in a pinch for a dish to bring to a BBQ the other day and found this in my Everyday Paleo Cookbook.  If you miss hummus, this is about as close as one could possible get for a paleo version and it is tremendous.  Best part about it? Super easy.  Hope you enjoy!

Red Pepper Dip


2 cups walnuts (soak in water for an hour to soften, if you can)
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 jar (12 oz) roasted red peppers, drained
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp lemon juice (I was out, so subbed with lime juice)


Pulse walnuts, cumin, and salt in food processor until finely ground.  Add peppers, garlic, EVOO, and lemon or lime juice.  Process until smooth.  Refrigerate.

Serve with celery, terra chips, or other favorite veggies!
